WHO ARE WE?
EAST LANCS CLARION CHOIR (ELCC) are a mixed, non-auditioned choir from Burnley who meet weekly to sing in 4 part harmony – all the songs are taught by ear.
The choir has its roots in the Clarion tradition of singing as a part of radical campaigning – it is one of only 4 in the UK with the 'Clarion' title. We're a community choir, enabling people to sing together for the fun of it and it's good for you (says Dr Michael Mosley). But we also support local groups, whose values we share.
Information about the choir is on our website at: www.clarion-choir.co.uk
